Improving your Test Process (TPI Next and TMMi)

The first step for improvement is to know where you are and where you are going to. In a test process assessment, this is exactly what is investigated as the basis for Test Process Improvement. The next step then is to plan and implement an improvement track that brings your test process from the current situation to the desired one.

CTG offers a targeted interactive training that provide you with the perfect basis, not only for conducting test process assessments at your own or at your client’s site, but also for implementing test improvement tracks:

  • Test Process Assessment & Improvement models
  • TPI Next®
  • TMMi®


Currently no (other) upcoming dates are planned for this course


Course Objectives

The objective of the Test Process Improvement course is to provide test professionals involved in test process management, with the necessary handles to acquire the basic insights and tips and tricks to manage test process improvements effectively.

A general overview on how test process improvement models can be applied to plan and implement both test process assessments and test process improvement tracks is given. Furthermore, the TMMi® and the TPI Next® test process improvement models are studied in detail.

Focus will be in the first place on making the trainee familiar with the structure of the models and the available documentation such that he or she will be able to actively use these models when conducting a test process assessment or test process improvement. During the training, trainees will have ample opportunity to experiment with the TMMi® and the TPI Next® test process improvement models in dedicated case studies.
